On 17 March 2012, the first Gaelic Games for Kids was organised at the American Club, Hai Ba Trung, Hanoi on the morning of St Patrick’s Day. The idea behind this event was to introduce children under the age of 10 to Gaelic Games, both Gaelic Football and Hurling and teach them a few of the core skills
This initiative was the brainchild of Colm Ross and fits in neatly with his 20 year plan for dominance at the AGG 2032. Rumors abound that he plans to clone himself to fill the full forward position in an effort to ensure victory and this leave nothing-to-chance philosophy epitomises the vision of the man.
Brian Lalor took control of the Hurling side of things and even turned seanchaí at the end as a group of kids listened spellbound as he wove a colourful tale of property crashes and bank guarantees in ancient Ireland before St Patrick arrived to save the day and drive those responsible out of the country.
Claire Coughlan and Catherine Ganley represented the Duracelts. Claire remarked later on that it made her very proud to be part of the club. More of these events will follow during the year.
